Department of Mechanical Engineering
The Department of Mechanical Engineering was established in the year 1981at the time of inception of MVSREC.
The department offers two under graduate programmes, B.E in Mechanical Engineering, B.E in Automobile Engineering with an intake of 120 and 60 seats respectively and one Post Graduate Programme, M.E. with specialisation in CAD/CAM with an intake of 18 seats.
The department has a team of 38 highly qualified, motivated and experienced faculty with 5 faculty having Ph.D qualification and 30 faculty having M.E./ M.Tech qualification under various areas of specialisation.The department has well equipped laboratories with research facilities and is actively involved in many fabrication and research projects in collaboration with leading R&D organizations.
The department has to its credit Management training programs, industrial consultancy and funded projects from government bodies. These connections serve to benefit students in the form of good placements, well-equipped laboratories and industrial exposure.The department is associated with Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE), Indian Society for Technical Education (ISTE), Renewal Energy Club, Fiber Glass Industries Association of Andhra Pradesh (FIAAP).
The department also conducts student level technical event called “SAMAVARTHAN” once in two years and “AUTOCOGNIZANCE” every year featuring events like technical paper presentation, Assembly test, CAD test, Automobiles Display, etc with active participation from students all over the state. These events help enhance the students' technical skills and update their knowledge in developments in engineering and technology.
The students of the department have successfully fabricated All Terrain Vehicles (ATV), Efficycle, etc at college itself and actively participated in SAE events like “SAE-BAJA”, “EFFICYCLE”, etc.The students of the department also have Mechanical Engineering Student Association (MESA), which is a forum for students to develop their professional skills.
A unique feature of the department is that all the technical events for the students are completely planned, organised and executed by the students themselves, thus giving them complete independence, paving way for their personality development and refining of their leadership abilities.
Best Teacher Awards: The College awards the “Best Teacher Award (BTA)” for outstanding faculty members in every department. The award is based on opinion polls conducted by the students, who rate the faculty based on various criteria set by the departments. The award carries a Gold Medal and a Certificate of Appreciation.
NBA: The BE(Mech.Engg) course of the department has been Provisionally Accredited by the National Board Accreditation in 2002, 2007 and 2013 (for two years).

Program Educational Objectives (PEO’s):
Undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering prepares the students to:
- Have sound foundation in Mathematics, sciences and skills in the areas of Mechanics, design, thermal sciences and production processes as well as allied engineering areas so that they can analyze, design, synthesize and implement engineering solutions in their professional careers.
- Be able to communicate and perform effectively as an engineer while working independently or in a team, demonstrating professional, ethical and societal responsibilities.
- Continuously enhance their skills through formal education, training, independent inquiry and professional practices.
- Engineering Knowledge: Apply the knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals, and an engineering specialization to the solution of complex engineering problems.
- Problem analysis: Identify, formulate, review research literature, and analyze complex engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences, and engineering sciences.
- Design / Development of solutions: Design solutions for complex engineering problems and design system components or processes that meet the specified needs with appropriate consideration for the public health and safety, and the cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
- Conduct investigations of complex problems: Use research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of the information to provide valid conclusions.
- Modern tool usage: Create, select, and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools including prediction and modeling to complex engineering activities with an understanding of the limitations.
- The engineer and society: apply reasoning informed by the contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to the professional engineering practice.
- Environment and sustainability: Understand the impact of the professional engineering solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge of, and need for sustainable development.
- Ethics: Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of the engineering practice.
- Individual and team work: Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams, and in multidisciplinary settings.
- Communication: Communicate effectively on complex engineering activities with the engineering community and the society at large, such as, being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
- Project management and finance: Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the engineering and management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects and in multidisciplinary environments.
- Life-long learning: Recognize the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
Research Potential: Usage of advanced software packages commonly used in industry for modeling, assembly and to carry out multiphysics analysis.
Competent areas: Design and build components and systems related to mechanical and allied disciplines, using various manufacturing methods.
The BE(MECH) Course of the department is Provisionally Accredited by National Board of Accreditation for two years with effect from 8th Nov 2013.
